Home' Trinidad and Tobago Guardian : November 11th 2015 Contents The United National Congress (UNC) s Youth Arm
is calling on the party s political leader candidate
Vasant Bharath to resign as a senator.
In a press release dealing with the announcement
of Bharath s candidacy, Youth Arm chairman Nicholas
Morris suggested that pending the December 5 internal
election, Bharath should resign from his post if he
was unwilling to support incumbent leader Kamla
While Morris said Bharath s entry into the leadership
race showed that "the party is alive and democracy
is ever present," he claimed that the former trade and
investment minister needed to display his commit-
"This commitment has become relevant given the
fact that Mr Bharath has missed the last few parlia-
mentary arm meetings where as a senator his atten-
dance was mandatory," Morris said.
"If, however, this commitment is beyond his call
he should consider the honourable and ethical deed
of resigning from the Senate and putting party before
self, as Dr Roodal Moonilal did a week ago when he
resigned as Opposition Chief Whip in a bid to also
contest the leadership."
Bharath has been involved in politics for just over
20 years and was deputy chairman of the UNC under
the former (2007) Basdeo Panday administration,
during which time he was tipped as Panday s successor.

A $2 million electric-powered
bus will be brought to T&T from
China in the next couple of weeks,
to be used by students of the Uni-
versity of T&T (UTT).
This was revealed by UTT pres-
ident Professor Dyer Narinesingh
during the launch of Caricom Energy
Week at UTT s Energy Campus,
Point Lisas, on Monday.
Narinesingh, in an interview, said
the European Union gave UTT a $1
million grant to purchase the bus.
"Through the Ministry of the
Environment and Water Resources,
we managed to get the $1 million
grant which went towards the acqui-
sition of a bus. UTT put out another
$1 million and the bus is supposed
to be landing in Trinidad by mid-
December or early January," Nari-
He said all the documents had
been finalised and brokers had been
identified. The bus will be stationed
outside UTT s solar house, Nari-
"We will use the electricity from
the solar house to charge the bat-
teries of the bus. We will not be
using the T&TEC grid to charge the
batteries. This will be used to pro-
mote clean energy," Narinesingh said.
He added that UTT also planned
to acquire a few CNG buses to assist
in the internal transportation of stu-
dents and staff throughout UTT s
Narinesingh said the thrust
towards clean energy must be
accompanied by a change in cul-
"People must become more
mindful about the need to conserve
energy. We are the second highest
emitter of greenhouse gases per
capita in the world and there is a
need to change the way we function,"
He noted that a "high degree of
dependence on oil revenues makes
us exceedingly vulnerable to fluc-
tuating oil prices. We are increasingly
aware of the crucial need to diversify
The president added that a major
challenge facing societies including
T&T was how to make the energy
sector more efficient and cost effec-
tive whilst mitigating climate change.
He pointed out that one way of
doing this was to develop a frame-
work for T&T to transition to a
renewable energy economy that sig-
nificantly reduces its contribution
to green house gases from the burn-
ing of fossil fuels.
